Description - Food, Feminism, and Women's Art in 1970s Southern California by Emily Elizabeth Goodman

This book explores how feminist artists continued to engage with kitchen culture and food practices in their work as women's art moved from the margins to the mainstream.

In particular, this book examines the use of food in the art practices of six women artists and collectives working in Southern California-a hotbed of feminist art in the 1970s-in conjunction with the Women's Art Movement and broader feminist groups during the era of the Second Wave. Focused around particular articulations of food in culture, this book considers how feminist artists engage with issues of gender, labor, class, consumption, (re)production, domesticity, and sexuality in order to advocate for equality and social change.

The book will be of interest to scholars working in art history, food studies, and gender and women's studies.
